New to this site

Thought I'd say HI for my first post.

My name is Kory, and I recently picked up a 1997 Wrangler Sport. It's not my first Wrangler (owned a 92 Sahara, and a 99 Sahara in the past) and I've owned a number of other non-Wrangler Jeeps as well (current daily driver is a 2000 WJ).

Anyway, the difference this time, is I've finally managed to get a Wrangler as a 3rd "fun" car, that doesn't need to be a kid hauler or a daily driver (which is what limited my Wrangler builds in the past). I'm not planning anything crazy with this TJ though, just 4~ish inches of lift, 33" tires, and a little armor. More of a fun vehicle for my sons and I to take fishing and some minor trails on the weekends.

My TJ might not get too big too fast, but I'm pretty excited just to have saved enough to buy it as a 3rd car at this point (being a stay at home dad doesn't pay that well but the benefits are awesome!).

Anyway, thought I'd introduce myself and say HELLO!!!

Welcome Kory from another '97 owner. I wasn't planning anything crazy with mine either, but those plans didn't work out.

Welcome, I have a 97 also. My plans were to always go big though. Where are you from? I don't think I read that in your post.
